101 Best Websites – Update

As mentioned in my previous post, we have decided to dedicate this weekend to building a fully functioning web app in 48 hours. If you’re keeping track and planning on checking out what we’re doing, the site is:

101 Best Websites

So far we have the basic design and layout, and a little bit of Javascript to get us started, you can even register and login – but that’s as far as we’ve got. You can keep up to date on the 101 Blog: http://101bestwebsites.com/blog/ which we hope to style up and keep updated over the weekend.

Please take a look and let us know what you think!

Updates

It’s been a busy but enjoyable day, lots of work, some frustration but we’re generally feeling pretty pleased with ourselves – it’s not over yet, but time for an update…

So far today we’ve installed WordPress and styled it up to match the site: 101 Best Websites blog, the registration process is working, you can log in, change your password, view your profile page and contact us with your thoughts on the contact form.

We’ve had a few visitors, though we were hoping for more – and a couple of unusual comments on forums about whether or not we should have launched an unfinished site(?). We’re not sure whether that person fully understood the concept!

The final part for today is to get the site submission process up and running so we can get showcase websites onto +101 (our nickname for the 101 Best Websites)… if we can manage that we are well on track for our target of finishing the site by 10pm tomorrow night.

We’ll keep you informed.
